Critics’ Choice Awards: The Lego Movie

The Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) announced the winners of the 20th annual Critic’s Choice Movie and Television Awards last night. The nominees for Best Animated Feature included:

1. Big Hero 6
2. The Book of Life
3. The Boxtrolls
4. How To Train Your Dragon 2
5. The Lego Movie

With over 1 million viewers last night and the anticipation of the competitive nominee category, The Lego Movie would win for Best Animation.  Historically, the “Critics’ Choice Movie Awards” is the most accurate predictor of the Academy Award nominations. Which might come off as a surprise considering the winner of this category did not make a top nomination for the Oscars.
